Ross, I don't have any more info to give you. But your DNA test result is quite interesting and definitely will shift our focus of research.
Levi Turner Smith's obituary declared his birthplace as Henry County, Georgia and says he spent his first twenty years of life there. However he married in Marion County in 1852 which is quite a distance south of Henry County. Wells Smith, who is probably Levi's father, was in Henry in 1830 then in Marion County, Georgia 1840 and 1850, then Sumter County, Georgia in 1867.
Another clue that Wells Smith could be Levi's father is a court case in Marion County, Georgia by Dennis Springer in the mid 1850's against the estate of E. Brock. Wells Smith was the executor of this estate with E. Brock probably a relation of his wife Wilmot Brock Smith. Dennis Springer was married to Levi Turner Smith's wife's sister, Mariah Dorsett. (Marion County Superior Court Minute s, Bk B, 1852-56, p. 7 [Georgia State Archives Drawer 141, Box 70)

I will privately email you the two photos that I have.
Wendy
